Are you metrosexual?


Real World anyone?

Metrosexuals are now in the picture, shaking up all of our social norms- straight, gay, bi, male, female, etc.

Metrosexuals came into the picture in around 2000...

when men became more and more concerned about their appearance.

According to wikipedia, the word metrosexual is "generally applied to heterosexual men with a strong concern for their appearance, and/or whose lifestyles display attributes stereotypically attributed to gay men."

So essentially a straight men that acts gay.

Personally metrosexuals are annoying to me.
Occasionally i see a very attractive, well groomed, and well dressed man.
Normally i would consider him fair game, however he may be straight, he may be gay, who knows?

However, gay men can appear straight. So i guess its fair?

What do you think of metrosexual? are YOU one?

SIDENOTE: the picture is of Chet from Real World Brooklyn, hes a "straight" mormon metrosexual who wears eyeliner, and makeup. Also; notice the glasses, hair and scarf. Being kissed is Whitney Thompson, winner of Americas Next Top Model cycle 10.
